  • Visited here with wife and two young sons (1 & 3). This was a must for us on the way to the Mall of America as our son is at the trains/dinosaurs stage. It was great to wander through all the trains a...  more »
  • The history of the Eisenhower Engine is worth the trip all on it's own. I attended a luncheon there, and we were presented with a very complete story of the train in WWII and how it came to reside in ...  more »

  • This is a nice resource for the Green Bay area. Keep in mind that many cities have railroad museums and the “national railroad museum” does not rank at the top of the list. I prefer the Lake Superior Railroad Museum in Duluth. The Lake Superior Museum is attached to a very historic depot built in 1892.
  • What a wonderful place for anyone interested in trains! My toddler and I loved checking out all the trains, signs, and lights. The Children's Discovery Depot was a great place for the little one to explore puzzles, track safety, and pre-assembled toy tracks.
  • Nice place. Quiet and educational. Lots to learn about America's rail history.
  • This place was awesome! I am not a train guy, but my 22 month old son loves Thomas and Friends, so I thought he would enjoy seeing real trains up close. There is an indoor play area for kids with toy trains and exhibits. We took the train ride around the grounds and the conductor explained all the historical significance of the train engines and cars we passed by. There are some trains indoors which have been restored. You can walk around in them. I was impressed by the "Big Boy" steam engine. It is a great time for all ages.
  • Way cool! Our favorite part was being able to walk onto some of them. Very educational and fun!
